Damn Drivin' Fool!
Has anyone retrofitted their manual AC/heating unit with an automatic one? Difficulties?
Hey eddie what's up? Haven't seen you in a while. Doing some artic training....:lmao: You and me both have the dials. I dont know of anyone doing a retrofit because everyone in the STATES have the Automatic climate control, there's maybe one or two. Did you get the onboard computer when you ordered??????? I did not so I think that's why we didn't get the ACC. I'm doing a retrofit for the signal stalk OBC that tells you the Temp outside and the mileage at the moment http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?threadid=47474&highlight=Turn+signal+stalk but the ACC is going to be one of the next projects. I think the best person to ask if you have all the parts is VinceTopazBlau325i. I believe he has the BMW parts service repair manual TIS ETK CD. The only thing to do is wait till Monday and call the dealership. I called the dealership and asked the service guy about getting the signal stalk to work so I got an appointment on the 19th at Countyline BMW to reprogram my compter so the OBC will work. I'm sure you can install it yourself also to save a bundle. Looks pretty easy. Good luck.E 40 SIX said::eeps: Anyone?
Call me a retro grouch but I have always hated the automatic climate control snce the E36. The E46 version didn't seem any better so I ordered my car without it. I love the simplicity of twisting a knob to set the airflow and temp exactly where I like it.Ausfahrt said:

E 40 SIX said:Yeah, I'm pretty much satisfied with the manual AC/heating unit as well. But I just love the way the HVAC unit illuminates at night. :tongue:

Not only do you have to buy the unit but you have to buy the wiring harness (different plugs apparently) among other things. You also have to reprogram your car. All together he said it would cost roughly $1700. I don't know how accurate the info he gave me was. Let us know if you guys heard differently.
